- Title : Giroud scores twice in Milan's comeback win in the city derby
The French striker scored twice in three-minute span to turn things around in the derby of Milano
Olivier Giroud scored twice as AC Milan came from behind to beat Inter Milan and move to within a point of their rivals at the top of Serie A.
Ivan Perisic side-footed a volley into the bottom corner from Hakan Calhanoglu's corner and defending champions Inter looked in control.
The ex-Arsenal man then sealed the win with a brilliant turn and finish from Davide Calabria's pass.
AC Milan had Theo Hernandez sent off in the final seconds for a lunging tackle on Denzel Dumfries.
The win puts them within a point of Inter, who still top the table, and three points above third-placed Napoli.
AC Milan's last major trophy was the 2010-11 Serie A title. Stefano Pioli is their eighth manager since then.
